Vice President: Laura
Director of Flight Operations: Kristin
Kristin’s aviation career has come full circle. Her first flying job was in Anchorage, and in the following decades has seen her flying all over this wonderful country and has now landed her in Sitka to serve as Harris Air’s Director of Flight Operations. It is her job to keep the airplanes flying safely and providing excellent service to our clients. This is a job she has done before with an FAA certified air carrier in Northern Michigan, but has flown out of Florida and California as well. She is a very accomplished IFR pilot with thousands of hours of that kind of flying, much of it with the Navajos we fly. With her own airplane, “Maggie” she has criss-crossed the country, and has landed in 45 out of the 50 states in the union. Originally from Minnesota, Kristin loves the northern woods and the clean air of Alaska. She makes her home in Sitka with the a white standard poodle, Cody, who is a complete goofball. She encourages passengers with concerns or questions about their experience with Harris Air to contact her in the Sitka office.
Chief Pilot: Evan
Evan's previous flying experience came from the Northwest Arctic flying for Bering Air. Here in Sitka he flys the Cessna 185 and the Piper Navajo. "Being dually qualified I take great pride in getting people where they need to go! When I am not flying I enjoy fishing (for the freezer and fun), traveling, or staying at home with my soon to be wife and kitty cat. In August of this year my fiancé and I will marry and celebrate our honeymoon floating down the Salmon River in Idaho!"
Director Of Maintenance: Michael
Sitka Station Manager: Jen
Juneau Station Manager: Kelsey
Originally from Michigan, Kelsey has lived in Juneau for 4 years and has been working with Harris Air since 2017. "I love being a part of a company that still carries the values and morals I grew up with in my family's small business. All decisions are based off safety and our customers! My job running the Juneau Station and Harris Air promotions has been a great experience visiting the communities we serve and getting to know our passengers on a first name basis!" When she is not at work, you can find her outdoors hiking, fishing, or soaking up family time with her husband and 2 dogs.
